If you're into history at all, this is a must see. And it's still a working parish. What made it all so good was the docent who gave us the history of the church and of Patrick Henry. This is American History 101 folks; don't pass it up

Worth visiting and reliving the moment of history. Even better because you can walk up to block to an overlook and a great view of Richmond city. And then the opposite direction to all the amazing, now-nationally acclaimed restaurants and bakeries in the Hill. Street parking isn't usually a problem.

Don't be cheap -- pay for the tour! You'll learn a bit of U.S. history and get to sit where some of our Founding Fathers debated the future of our nation. Then take a walk through the old cemetery.

We were lucky enough to visit on the anniversary of the famous Patrick Henry speech and as the 'old enemy' were given the best seats in the house. The re-enactment itself was really very well done. The church itself is well worth a visit, small but full of history

This is a must see for anyone visiting Richmond. It's all about Patrick Henry's speech but the Church itself is beautiful and the re-enacting of the meeting that produced his "Give me Liberty or Give me Death" speech was awesome. It was like being there. The actors were convincing and I sat in George Washington's pew!

This is another church that has a cemetery surrounding that has some famous names buried there. How about Poe's mother? Check out the rest. There is a tour of the church with a small cost and you purchase tickets at the book store. This church is the location of the "Give me Liberty or Give me Death" speech by Patrick... More

We stopped by on our way back to our hotel which was 5 minutes away. We were able to get in the last guided tour at 3:30. We spent about 35 minutes in the church with our guide. She gave us a lot of information during this time and when we left my husband said he felt like he was... More

When we went in the organist was rehearsing for Sunday service the organ in this church is just fantastic. The stained class is timeless and there is so much history in this church. Don't miss out take the time to go see this.
